We drove across this amazing structure on our visit to Boston. It was like a piece of art and made the whole trip worth the drive from Georgia to Boston. We drove over it during the day but were struck by its brilliance at night. The Bridge is named after civil rights activist Lenny Zakim and the American colonists who... More

A dramatic and, now, iconic architectural feature of the Boston skyline which goes beyond the aesthetic. It was named for my friend and hero, the late Lenny Zakim, who exemplified the value of bridge building throughout his life, professionally as a civil rights leader, and personally, through his work to connect the people of New England, the US and the...

When driving through Boston I always like seeing the bridge coming up. It is very pretty, especially at night. When driving up to the bridge I feel like I am in Boston!

My hotel was within a very short walk of the bridge and surrounding park. What a relaxing stroll I had walking all through the area and the bridge with its beautiful cable stay design is really a modern work of art (as bridge design goes).

This is probably what got my attention the most while leaving the airport to head towards Cambridge. The bridge sticks out so much due to its intricate design and has a very unique charm. It also looked beautiful at night with all the lights reflecting upon it.

We came in Logan airport and drove out over the bridge at night in the rain. The bridge changes colors and is simply beautiful. It was built to resemble ship sails and it does. It is the largest bridge of it's kind until recently when Canada built one a bit larger. Must see especially at night!!

First time we saw this bridge was when we were crossing Charles river on Charlestown bridge. It's a modern architecture style and it was named in honor of Boston's civil rights leader, Leonard Zakim.

The Zakim bridge is my favorite bridge in Boston. It's the perfect gateway to Charlestown/ the North End/ West End. It's striking at any time of the day, particularly at dusk and sparkling at night. I pass under the bridge on my way home from work everyday and it's a nice walk, much less crowded than along the streets. You... More

Boston is one of the oldest cities in US, but that doesn't mean that stopped in time. Quite the contrary. This bridge is just one example for it! Very modern architecutre. If you decide to follow the Freedom Trail, you'll definetely see it!
